Master Shipbuilding and Maritime Engineering

University: Kiel University of Applied Sciences
Department: Department of Mechanical Engineering
Location: Kiel
Degree: Master
Start of study:
Winter semester ,

Short description

The course content ranges from design, e.g. of special ships such as emission-free ferries, to modern CFD methods for the simulation of hull flows, e.g. on sailing yachts, to FEM strength calculations of modern ship structures. They are dedicated to questions of ship dynamics, operational stability, construction with fiber composites and much more. The basics, e.g. in mathematics and numerical methods, are deepened and expanded and, last but not least, knowledge of business administration and the organization of complex systems is acquired. Students work independently on projects in the course work and the Master's thesis. The orientation of the course is scientific with a strong practical focus. It can also be carried out as a so-called industry-accompanied study program in cooperation with a company.
